Finally found a saddle!

So for the last 6 years all I have had for a saddle was a little abetta. My mom thought that it would be better for me (when I first started riding at 10 years) than a leather one because they were a lot lighter. Well now I'm 17 and I finally saved enough money this summer to go and get a nice leather saddle. Originally the seller was wanting $600 for it, but she eventually went down to $475 and I was able to afford it. It's a Tex Tan hereford saddle. I don't know how old it is (I think she said she had it for like 10 years and she had bought it used) but it's still in really great condition. Another nice thing is that it's a FQHB and fits Angel really well (Which is hard because she is pretty wide). Here are a couple pics.

(Original craigslist pic minus the cross)

And from yesterday with it on Angel.
